The Bethlehem Experience in Westlake Village
December 9, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Bethlehem Experience is returning in 2016 on Friday and Saturday, December 9th and 10th from 5-9 p.m. in Westlake Village. Drive through the First Christmas Eve! For two magical nights, Bethlehem comes to Westlake Village as the congregation of Westminster Presbyterian Church transforms their church grounds into The Bethlehem Experience, an amazingly lifelike recreation of the 1st-century village. Incredible sets, theatrical lighting, a wonderful collection of props, and over 100 members of the congregation in period costumes transport visitors back in time.
BethEx offers our community, free of charge, a chance to drive through the bustling village of Bethlehem at the time of Jesus’ birth. Visitors will drive past the Magi camped on the outskirts of the village, shepherds watching their sheep, Centurions and tax collectors at the gates to Bethlehem, villagers in the marketplace selling Fist Century goods, the Inn that turned away Mary and Joseph and, of course, the Nativity scene with Mary, Joseph, angels and baby Jesus.
Westminster Presbyterian Church is located at 32111 Watergate Road, Westlake Village. FREE!
